Visit the Philadelphia Flower Show

Each year Philadelphia holds the Flower Show that is full of beautiful displays. It's a great place to spend a few hours looking around and admiring all of the hard work put in by floral and landscape designers from around the world.

First Friday is a day where artists around the city display their art. A bunch of restaurants in the area also hold special drink and lunch menus so it's awesome to walk around and spend time with friends.

Even though you're probably ready for all things snow to be over with this year, ice skating at Penn's Landing is so much fun. On top of ice skating, there's food, arcade games, and even fire pits. Plus, this is the last weekend the rink will be open so you shouldn't miss it.

Go shopping on Walnut Street

Sometimes shopping is the best thing to do when you can't find anything else. In the city, Walnut Street is a hub for great shops and a must-do when boredom strikes.

Watch Dispatches From Elsewhere on Netflix

Even though this isn't something you technically need to be in Philadelphia for, it's a close second because this new show starring Jason Segel takes place in the city. When leaving your house to explore the city sounds like doing too much, this show is a great way to end spring break.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine.

When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating.
